Going to Spain to see an old friend and experience their famed August festival. I thought I'd post here to make sure I've got everything covered. I assume I'll need a passport, correct? If so, I plan to do that this weekend. Will I need a visa? Anyone been to Spain and care to share their experience and let me know what to expect? I plan to use my Visa debit card for my spending. Will that be feasible? Sorry if that's a dumb question, but the only other country I've been to is Mexico, and there it was American cash only. How much hassle would it be to go to Paris for a day? Thanks for any advice. Btw, I'm going to Jaraiz de la Vera, slightly southwest of Madrid.
